Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

Have to agree with this article. We can't afford the luxury for a war on imaginary threats anymore:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... brexiteers

The scale of the coronavirus crisis exposes how pointless the Brexit cause is

Brexiteers’ war on imaginary threats now looks parochial and self-indulgent – history may judge them harshly

This might not feel like the moment to go on about Brexit, but Brexit goes on whether we are feeling it or not. When people are worried about surviving April, December’s deadline for EU trade talks seems a long way off. Covid-19 may have eclipsed older problems, but they will not solve themselves in its shadow.

The disease has halted negotiations and infected the lead negotiators. All Whitehall capacity is being spent on the immediate crisis. Boris Johnson has no time for Brexit. If he did, he might want to practise some social distancing from the idea.

Suppose for a moment that Britain had not already committed to quitting the single market. Then imagine the government choosing the peak of a pandemic to plan new obstructions for goods flowing between the UK and Europe. Picture Rishi Sunak, wunderkind chancellor, explaining why supply chains must be disrupted and friction added at Channel ports. Ponder ministers selling the idea of a customs border between mainland Britain and Northern Ireland – sand in the wheels of recovery, plus salt in the wounds of history. Pitched that way, as a post-viral convalescence strategy, the UK’s Brexit trajectory is absurd. Johnson’s best-case scenario – a “Canada-style” deal – promises only shock to a debilitated system.

Bit premature for crowing over the demise of the uk economy, particularly as the covid 19 crisis is further exposing the faultlines in the Eurozone economic model
- excessive QE, lack of common fiscal instruments, unsustainable debt amongst poorer southern neighbours etc.

Some responses are all about projection.
